Skyway1 (Chris) - Sorry to hear about your station closing also. I find it kind of wierd that they decide to kill it after it was announced and seemed like it was a pretty good idea. I'm really confused as to what the big whigs are doing down in IND
. First they said they were committed to the C8
operation, now they are axing everything. Something fishy has gone on in the past week down in IND
. I know that they had a marketing meeting a week ago today and from what I had been hearing things were looking up for C8
. But, I stress BUT, I think C8
was blindsided because I have been *hearing* that they are parking 1 plane for sure, and up to 7 more aircraft leaving only 10 to run the operation. IMOO, I think all companies would have been better off with the AirTran deal. C8
already had a schedule in place with both ATA and FL
ready for the quick transition. Like a friend of mine said, C8
isn't going to be needed any more because WN
is now going to feed the ATA flights where the most money will be made. But what I don't get, why not sell C8
off? If they are going to take the charge on parking the aircraft and laying off the employees, why not sell it off to raise money? I don't see the C8
flights making as much money as I think the company is worth.
I'm just an armchair ceo *snickers* but I just have to really question what they are doing down there in IND
. Even when I was working for C8
, I questioned some of the irrational (IMO) decisions they were making. Good luck to all of the C8
employees that are going to be affected. Even though I am not with the company, I still feel a part of the family because the people were so wonderful and fun. Good luck to you all!
